Saw this on TV a couple of days ago, I was expecting a French version of "One Fine Day" but was rather disappointed (even fell asleep for a time ). Picture quality excellent and we get to discover the beautiful city of Nantes in Central Western France. However the plot is abysmal, I was expecting to see development of a relationship between father and daughter, but only a small part of the film is about this, though we do see some bonding towards the end. There are too many different subplots in the film which don't lead anywhere ( plot is oh ! so important ) and I really got the feeling in this case that the subject had been wasted because of a lousy script. There have been other French films of this nature with far better plots but this one was a failure. Unfortunately, the more the years pass, the more failures of this kind there are. The cinema is certainly in need of creativity these days !
